KATONAH, N.Y. — Today, Liz Whitmer Gereghty announced she received an endorsement from Rep. Eric Swalwell (CA-14) in her bid for Congress.
“In order to flip New York’s 17th Congressional District and take back the House, we need to elect Liz Whitmer Gereghty,” Swalwell said. “Her steady, pragmatic leadership is the ultimate foil to Mike Lawler, who is a rubber stamp to his party’s extreme agenda. In Congress, Liz will lead on gun safety reform, champion voting rights, and protect a woman’s right to choose. With years of experience leading at the local level, Liz knows what the Hudson Valley needs and how to represent her community well.”
“I’m honored to earn Representative Eric Swalwell’s support in our movement to defeat Mike Lawler,” Gereghty said. “Rep. Swalwell knows the urgency of holding Republican extremists accountable and fighting for our democracy, and that starts with flipping this seat. I thank him for his incredible leadership on national gun safety reform, voting rights, and climate action, and look forward to working with him in Congress.”
Swalwell joins Gereghty’s previously announced coalition of support, including EMILYs List, Elect Democratic Women, TriState Maxed Out Women’s PAC, and Mom’s Fed Up PAC.
